    Radeon 3870XT?

    Is this just a downclocked 3870? I don't see much info on it... And it's a little deceiving when you think of how ATI's naming convention works... usually an "XT" added to the name means something better, but from googling I think it's a downclocked card.

    How come there's no much info on it? I believe it's released overseas, but not in the states.

    wierd, though while the store link url has XT in it, under the card name it says 3870PRO which would seem to me its a normal 3870, and not an XT.

    I cant view the XSs link to look at the guys card.
    Need to build Encoding PC!

    that's b/c it's in XS's classifieds... you have to be a member and you have to have privileges to view it. sry about that.

    just google 3870xt. you will see some other forums and overseas stuff about it.

    3850
    3870
    3870x2

    right?

    some company may be trying to make money off of slapping xt on it but as far as i last heard xt/pro badging is dead. think of 3850 as pro and 3870 as xt. but its all numbers now. and the x2 in the 3870x2 just means 2 gpu's

    The "x2" I understand... makes perfect sense.

    So I guess a 3870XT is a 3870, eh? Still misleading when you take a look at this link:
    http://www.fuzing.com/vli/002981b983...870XT-VGA-card
    ...as they call it a 3870pro...

    well now im confused...

    Fully distributed design with 512-bit internal ring bus for memory reads and writes
    but then again how trustworthy is that site? did somebody remake the card with an extra layer?

    the 3870 does have a 512-bit ring bus. its a 256-bit card with ring bus memory interface design making a 512-bit ring bus. 256-bit each way.

    ah that makes sense. ok so basically the stats up and down are the same because there is no xt and the company didn't get the "memo" x.O

    They need to make the naming process more complicated imo. I almost understand this.
